My husband took the day off to spend it with me today and while it was great to have that time with him, it totally threw me off my plans. First off, it was a surprise so I couldn't plan ahead. Second, I have a hard time saying, I need to do thi... Read more

Judging my own progress has been a challenge this month. Usually, I just look to the scale to see if I'm "succeeding" or "failing." This time is different. For one, the scale has not been moving! But also because I'm learning that the scale does... Read more

I have a solid start on my second week of ... well, caring about myself. (If I'm talking honestly and all.) I've always known that the more often and consistently I work out, the better I feel. Yet the hardest thing for me is getting off the ... Read more

I borrowed a few Zumba DVDs to see what the big deal is all about. Now I know! I did 20 minutes yesterday and 45 minutes today. And most importantly: I HAD FUN! This girl would not have said those words even just last week. I've been down thi... Read more

For a few years now, I have had what I felt was the perfect word to describe myself: tubby. And I used that word many, many times each day. I used it so much so that my husband would take my shoulders and look me right in the eye and say, Please... Read more
